Another detractor.
Quick, do what he says! No one think for themselves. There is no forum but what Wharf, Cliff, and Arbut say you can visit.
Hail the Triumvirate of Power! Down with self determination.

Nobody tells me what to do... except my wife. Easy now kockman, I gave you kudos on the parts I went to. Like I said I only have time enough for the few sites I frequent. And with words like triumvirate I had to add Merriam-Webster into the mix.

triumvirate
Main Entry: tri·um·vi·rate
Pronunciation: \trī-ˈəm-və-rət\
Function: noun
Date: 1584
1 : a body of triumvirs
2 : the office or government of triumvirs
3 : a group or association of three

I'm hung up on this word "triumvirate." Where did you hear it? It's not used in common language these days, or at least not in my circle Was it used recently in some popular culture medium?

Catchy tag line:
"Wordsmith.Org : the magic of words"

All is three... As you are three. As you are one... As you are the One. You are the One Who Was. You are the One Who Is. You are the One Who Will Be.

Wordsmith cannot say. Saying, I would know. Do not know, so cannot say!

sorry 'bout that
